(Almost) 24-hour diabetes tracking log

24-hour (almost) diabetes log for tracking glucose, carbs, meds, and exercise. MS Word and pdf files included.

Paper size: 
Letter
Thumbnail: 
24HrLog.jpg
Usage advice: 

I omitted a few of the night-time hours so it would fit onto one page.

The far right column is for averages and totals.

I recently started taking insulin shots so wanted to stop focusing on the exact time of glucose readings and see the patterns. Am hoping this will help.

There are lots of logs posted on the internet and this is adapted from one I found at a University of California-San Francisco site.

2 Page per Week Planner w/Task List

I've developed this template, fully merged for 2008, based on my 3 years of working with the Harvard Planner.

I've taken some of the useful (to me) elements, and rearranged them. First, I've rearranged the weekly calendar across the top half of the two pages, Mon-Wed on the left, Tr-Sun on the right. The task, which were on the right page of a Harvard, are now under both pages. Gone are all the small columns for weekdays and checkoffs. There's a simple single column adaptable. If it's a calendar event, put the M,T,W,TR,F, etc in the box; if it's a task, I use a GTD-esque dash system there.

All new! I've added the first 24 pages of my now complete year. The new setup includes the following, front to back, with thanks to ygor:

DIY blank cover
DIY Personal Info sheet
Blank spacer page
2008-2009 2 page per year calendars (thanks ygor)
January 2 page per month overview calendar (thanks again, ygor)
January pages, described above.
Repeat for each month.
Ends with several note pages as spacers.

Take a look. Let me know what you think. I'll look for another location for the full file - it's too big to post here. Most likely caused by merging several pdfs with pdfsam.

2 pg weekly planner, Classic

Someone posted a DIY version of the Levenger Multi-tasker planner for us. I took that template and modified it to include a menu planner and space for weekly tasks/notes and a task list. I included a line at the top for the daily weather because that usually plays a part in my planning.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

I've left some of my personal weekly check off tasks, and modified the ones I didn't want to share. That whole section can be removed and replaced with more lines for notes. This is an old MS Word file, so it should be easy enough to modify, including putting actual times in the appointment section if you prefer. It uses a lot of tables, the print preview function will show which lines don't actually show up when printing.

2-page-per-day (5x8 index cards)

I decided to start my new binder system with the set up that I originally used from Franklin Covey (schedule and to-do lists on the left, notes on the right) except I improved it (for me) by making the to-do lists the entire length of the page. This template uses 5" X 8" blank index cards, which are great for me because I am pretty rough with my pages and need the extra thickness so they don't rip out of my binder. This template starts with July 19, 2007 (the date I started my new planner) and goes through the end of September. Enjoy!

Paper size: 
Other
Usage advice: 

If you don't have two-sided printing, print out the Notes sides first on the cards, and then flip them over to print out the schedule/to-do list sides. You can change the date easily by cutting and pasting the month for each day (since I did not include the day of the week on the top).

2007 Dated Weekly View Planner in MS Word

2007 Planner, A5, with one week per page, Monday start, in MS Word. The days of the week are in one column and there are no markings for times. It's very basic--not nicely formatted like the D*I*Y calendars and templates.

Paper size: 
A5
Usage advice: 

This will give you one week to a page with the weekly view on the left and a Notes page on the right for voice mail, etc. It prints in landscape on 8.5x11 paper, so two weeks print on one sheet of paper. Then flip the paper and print the Notes pages on the back of the dated pages. Then cut the pages apart down the middle. The Notes pages are very faintly lined so you can pretty much disregard the lines or use them, as desired--or edit them. After it's printed, I put the pages in order, insert extras, then off to Staples to get them spiral bound. I put in the contact page as the first page and they give me a transparent cover, so the contact page shows through. But am thinking of getting the contact page laminated so it will hold up to wear better--my plastic cover is starting to worry me, and I think that two layers of plastic would last better. On the other hand, I want to keep the weight and thickness to the minimum.

The margins are as narrow as I could get them so there would be plenty of space for writing. But since there's not too much space in the daily blocks, I just write appointments there, and use the Notes pages for anything more detailed. If you want to use them in a 3-ring binder you could. After each month I put an envelope or pocket page and/or a photograph page--also making sure there's a Notes page facing each calendar page, by inserting an extra Notes page.
And other pages from the D*I*Y templates can be printed and also included.

I used WordArt to plug in the word "Holiday" in the space for the days where I'm planning not to work, so I won't make any appointments for those days. You can just click on the word "Holiday" if you want to delete it. Also, I've included the US holidays--you can delete them if you want. And Daylight Savings Time and some religious holidays and the dates of the solstices and equinoxes.

If you don't need the Notes pages for the extra writing space, you could omit them, but then you would have to re-arrange the calendar pages so they would print in the right order. As it is, it worked out great for me, and I like not having to worry about getting the pages in order until after they are printed, because I stick in the pocket pages, envelopes, and photos, some of the D*I*Y templates, etc.

When I print, I always get the error message that the margins are set outside the printable area, but I have it go on to print and it comes out fine.

This is actually courtesy of coolhands21 open source files - I just changed the font to "Bella" and the top part to pink to make it look more girly.

Usage advice: 

I believe he used a DIY template. I also deleted the US holidays because I am in Canada, I will add the Canadian Holidays... I just left the 'shared' holidays that I know of..

I like this layout - I am making my own planner (I am a scrapbooker) and have a weird 4 ring binder that I can't find inserts for.

2007 One Month per Page

I needed a one month per page layout... but ran into some problems with printing since I wanted them duplex.

I'm sharing the solution here :o)

I used the marvelous free pdf calendars available here : SCIRAL .

I used Illustrator to reformat them and put them into the proper order. I allowed room for punching and the .25" margin that most printers require.

Simply print duplex, slice down the middle, punch and utilize.

Hope this helps someone. :o)

2008 2 Pages Per Day Calendar Pack

I created this template for my daily planner pages and thought I'd share it. I borrowed design elements from quite a few other templates on here, I hope no one minds.

It's designed to fit on classic sized pages. There is a month on 2 pages at the beginning along with a monthly index to be printed on the duplex side of the month.

The rest of the pages are the daily pages with a personal task list, work task list and a daily timeline from 7AM to 7PM. The daily page also displays the current month along with the previous and next month. The last page is the daily notes page which should be printed on the back sides of the daily timeline pages.

There is also a reference calendar page for 2008-2011.

Usage advice: 

I'm attaching the openoffice source file for anyone to modify for their own use. I only created the month of April for Daily pages, but there are master slides for the rest of the months of the year. To change the master layout of the slide, right-click on the slide, select Page, then Slide Design and choose another monthly master to change the months displayed. The only thing that needs to be edited once this is done is the day of the week and the day number.

2008 and 2009 Week at a View Planner

This is a Word document, Classic page size, one week per page, Monday start.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
PlannerThumbnail.jpg
Usage advice: 

It's in table format, with the days going down the page.

The dates and the lines (between the cell borders) are set to print in 70% gray as I don't like the strong contrast between the paper and full black. Also it doesn't show through to the other side of the paper. But this is editable in Word by changing the font color.

I set margins to .3 inches and print two pages to a sheet, cut the pages apart, and have the book spiral bound with extra pages and some photos, an envelope, etc.

I have the weekly calendar page on the left and the right-hand side (the back of next week) is left blank for notes. You could put the weekly calendar on the right if you prefer. If you don't need the note space you could print duplex. There are also lined notes pages at the end of the file that you could print onto the back of the calendar if you like the lines.

If you have it spiral bound you can get plastic covers bound in. With the normal plastic covers Office Depot has, the covers start getting ragged (corners break off, etc) around August. It's better to take some scrapbook paper or a photo to use as the front and back cover, and have them laminated before binding.

There are several planning pages at the end of the file for future years.

There is some word art (the word "Holiday") at the official holidays when banks and post offices are closed. You can delete this if desired -- it's all editable.

Email me or leave a comment if you have any questions. I hope it's useful, if for nothing else than a starting point.
